Scariest Zombies

Culture
[MUSIC] When it comes to monsters, no creature has captured our collective imagination more than the zombie. The reanimated dead! A metaphor for our times and the perfect guilt free target for a video game shooting spree. But not all zombies are created equal. Donald Bell and this top five hunts down my personal list of the best types of zombie. Starting off at number five. Supernatural zombies, raised from the dead, not by a plague or science, but by sorcery. This is the OG zombie, the voodoo zombie. Before they were brain eaters. The word zombie described someone whose mind was controlled by witchcraft. Not as gross or bloody as modern zombies, but a still scary throwback to simpler zombie times. At number four, fast zombies. How did zombies get so fast? I feel like the reasons zombies never ever freaked me out that much is because they were just limping along. But now, movies like 28 Days Later and World War Z, zombies are faster than Usain Bolt. Hey super fit zombies, don't eat me! You should head over to Olive Garden and do some carbo loading. Got bottomless bread sticks. Coming in at number three, kid zombies! There's something particularly terrifying and surprising about a zombie kid. Or better yet, zombie babies. They're like half of what Halloween stores are selling these days are zombie baby lawn ornaments. It's a trend that confirms what we all secretly know to be true, babies are awful. Not your baby but you know. Everyone's. At number two. Romero zombies. In 1968 George Romero brought us Night of the Living Dead and with it the idea of slow, cannibalistic monsters that turn others into zombies with their bites. The zombies of The Walking Dead and the majority of zombie classics leading up to it are direct descendents. The Romero zombie. But there's still one type of zombie out there that causes even more terror and even more satisfaction when taken out by a shovel. My vote for the number one type of zombie goes to flaming zombies, whether freshly lit or crispy and smoldering, the flaming zombie combines the fear of being eaten alive. With the fear of being burned to death. What fun. So there you go, my five nominations for the zombie hall of fame. For some less gruesome top fives visit top5.cnet.com. I'm Donald Bell, thanks for watching. [MUSIC]
